Scholarly Poster


In this poster, based on the indoor and outdoor channel measurements at 73 GHz, a comprehensive large-scale fading path loss models are presented. The channel sounding measurements are carried out using a horn antenna at the transmitter (Tx) and receiver (Rx). The millimeter-wave propagation channel measurements campaigns were conducted at Boise Airport and Boise State University for both line-of-sight and none-line-of-sight scenarios. Subsequently, we developed the directional path loss models using close-in reference distance (CIM) and floating-intercept (FIM) methods. These approaches are applied to extract the large-scale channel parameters based on the empirical data. Path loss exponent (PLE) and shadow factor (σ) are estimated and compared to the free-space path loss parameters. Furthermore, the antenna height of the Rx is varied during taking channel measurements, and the path loss models are analyzed for the impact of the antenna heights. The results show that PLE extracted from the CIM model is close to the free-space path loss model.
